Adventurous Elopements & Intimate weddings

When all the attention is focused on the two people that really matter

 

 

After agonizing over venues and looking at a thousand pins on Pinterest you wake up in the middle of the night and realize this isn't us. We want a meaningful, totally unique wedding experience. 

The amazing thing is that getting married doesn't have to be stressful or dictated by traditions. Your wedding day can be anything you want it to be. You can elope, you can plan an intimate wedding next to a beautiful lake and if you have enough resources you can get married in space. Give yourself permission to think outside the traditional wedding box and create a wedding adventure that really speaks to your heart.

What is an Adventure Elopement?

A wedding celebration in the great outdoors that is 100% focused on you.

Your Adventurous Elopement

Most of the time the word ‘elope’ brings to mind a trip to the courthouse. This may have been true when our grandparents were young ... but today, it can be anything from hiking to your favorite overlook to exchange your vows to planning a weekend wedding celebration in the backcountry.

Adventure eloping describes a wedding celebration focused around an adventurous experience in nature. Adventure elopements will typically include 2-20 people and are not tied to a traditional wedding venue. Adventure elopements are created by you and can include any level of adventuring; from a short hike to your favorite vista to multiple days spent exploring the wonders of the PNW.

Eloping is the adventure you make it! It is a wedding celebration that is curated by you, for you. Eloping allows you to commit yourself to your best friend in a way that is intimate, authentic and completely you. There is no stress, ‘must haves’ or traditions. There is just you marrying your best friend in an unforgettable way.

Eloping can include

your friends and family.

Your People

Adventuring eloping doesn't mean you have to exclude your family and friends. It just means you will probably be picker with who you invite because having an intimate experience is important to you. The location you choose for your adventure elopement will affect how many people you can include; getting married on a glacier is easier done with two than ten.

Whether you choose to elope with just the two of you or your closest loved ones, the whole experience will be built around your unique wants and desires. There are no traditions or family expectations that have to be met. You are the only two people that truly matter and you deserve to get married in a way that is meaningful to you.

What is an intimate wedding?

A wedding experience that is 100% focused on you.

Your Adventurous Wedding Celebration

There is not a hard line between elopements and intimate weddings. Adventure elopements are a wedding experience in the great outdoors and will include less people. Intimate weddings will include more people and can have elements of a traditional wedding. Intimate weddings can be adventurous too. They can include exploring and getting married in non-traditional places. Regardless of what your wedding celebration is called the focus of elopements and intimate weddings will always be you.

You don't have to choose between eloping and having an intimate or traditional wedding. You could combine them… you could have a hiking sunrise ceremony and a traditional reception that evening. The possibilities are endless! Give yourself permission to dream and create a wedding experience that is completely you!
